Anxiang Du trial: Jury told man accused of killing family is unlikely to have been "severely depressed"

A jury's been told that a man accused of murdering a Northampton family is unlikely to have been "severely depressed".

Psychiatrist Dr Phillip Joseph, for the prosecution, said Anxiang Du had not "given up the fight", and had been able to work and visit casinos in the months before the killings.

The defence argue Du would never have killed if he'd not been depressed.

The 54-year-old from Coventry denies murder, but admits killing the Ding family in April 2011.
